Editor’s Note: We continue with the autobiography of James P. Beckwourth, a pioneer emigrant to the west, hunter, trapper, adventurer.
While the account is quite literate, we believe this tale was dictated to a scribe, an academic. The reason for this belief is that the language was written in a style that rugged outdoorsmen seldom spoke. It is much too flowery and elegant. I suspect, too, that the language was cleaned up considerably. Nonetheless, it makes for wonderful reading and gives a glimpse of what our pioneers went through in exploring the western part of our fledgling nation. This account was written by T D. Bonner, as dictated by Mr. Beckwourth. It was published originally in 1856 by Harper Brothers. Enjoy:
••••• On our arrival at the upper camp we found the men, twenty-six in number, reduced to short rations, in weakly condition, and in a discouraged state of mind. They had been expecting the arrival of a large company with abundant supplies, and when we rejoined them without any provisions, they were greatly disappointed. General Ashley exerted himself to infuse fresh courage into their disconsolate breasts, well knowing himself, however, that, unless we could find game, the chances were hard against us.
We remained in camp three or four days, until we were well refreshed, and then deliberated upon our next proceeding. Knowing there must be game farther up the river, we moved forward. Our allowance was half a pint of flour a day per man, which we made into a kind of gruel; if we happened to kill a duck or a goose, it was shared as fairly as possible. I recalled to mind the incidents of our Pawnee expedition. The third evening we made a halt for a few days. We had seen no game worth a charge of powder during our whole march, and our rations were confined to the half pint of flour per day. The Paper - 760.747.7119
We numbered thirty-four men, all told, and a duller encampment, I suppose, never was witnessed. No jokes, no fireside stories, no fun; each man rose in the morning with the gloom of the preceding night filling his mind; we built our fires and partook of our scanty repast without saying a word.
At last our general gave orders for the best hunters to sally out and try their fortune. I seized my rifle and issued from the camp alone, feeling so reduced in strength that my mind involuntarily reverted to the extremity I had been reduced to with Harris. At the distance of about a mile from the camp I came across a narrow deertrail through some rushes, and directly across the trail, with only the centre of his body visible (his two extremities being hidden by the rushes), not more than fifty yards distant, I saw a fine large buck standing. I did not wait for a nearer shot. I fired, and broke his back. I dispatched him by drawing my knife across his throat, and, having partially dressed him, hung him on a tree close by. Before I returned, I succeeded
in killing three good-sized elk, which, added to the former, afforded a pretty good display of meat.
I then returned near enough to the camp to signal to them to come to my assistance. They had heard the reports of my rifle, and, knowing that I would not waste ammunition, had been expecting to see me return with game. All who were able turned out to my summons; and when they saw the booty awaiting them, their faces were irradiated with joy. Each man shouldered his load; but there was not one capable of carrying the weight of forty pounds. The game being all brought into camp, the fame of "Jim Beckwourth" was celebrated by all tongues.
The day following we started forward up the river, and, after progressing some four or five miles, came in sight of plenty of deer-sign. The general ordered a halt, and directed all hunters out as before. We sallied out in different directions, our general, who was a good hunter, forming one of the
number. At a short distance from the camp I discovered a large buck passing slowly between myself and the camp, at about pistol-shot distance. As I happened to be standing against a tree, he had not seen me. I fired; the ball passed through his body, and whizzed past the camp. Leaving him, I encountered a second deer within three quarters of a mile. I shot him, and hung him on a limb. Encouraged with my success, I climbed a tree to get a fairer view of the ground. Looking around from my elevated position, I perceived some large, dark-colored animal grazing on the side of a hill, some mile and a half distant. I was determined to have a shot at him, whatever he might be. I knew meat was in demand, and that fellow, well stored, was worth more than a thousand teal ducks. I therefore approached, with the greatest precaution, to within fair rifle-shot distance, scrutinizing him very closely, and still unable to make out what he was. I could see no horns; and if he was a bear, I thought him an enormous one.

I took sight at him over my faithful rifle, which had never failed me, and then set it down, to contemplate the huge animal still farther.
Finally, I resolved to let fly; taking good aim, I pulled trigger, the rifle cracked, and I then made rapid retreat toward the camp. After running about two hundred yards, and hearing nothing in movement behind me, I ventured to look round, and, to my great joy, I saw the animal had fallen. Continuing my course on to the camp, I encountered the general, who, perceiving blood on my hands, addressed me, "Have you shot any thing, Jim?" I replied, "Yes, sir."
"What have you shot?"
"Two deer and something else," I answered. "And what is the something else?" he inquired. "I do not know, sir."
"What did he look like?" the general interrogated. "Had he horns?" "I saw no horns, sir."

An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young men his age, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem too concerned about it. One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table four objects.. 1. A Bible 2. A silver dollar 3. A bottle of whisky 4. And a Playboy magazine
'I'll just hide behind the door,' the old preacher said to himself. 'When he comes home from school today, I'll see which object he picks up.
"What color was the animal?"
"You can see him, general," I replied, "by climbing yonder tree."
The general ascended the tree accordingly, and looking through his spy-glass, which he always carried, he exclaimed, "A buffalo, by heavens!" and, coming nimbly down the tree, he gave orders for us to take a couple of horses, and go and dress the buffalo, and bring him into camp.
I suggested that two horses could not carry the load; six were therefore dispatched, and they all came back well packed with his remains.
There was great rejoicing throughout the camp at such bountiful provision, and all fears of starvation were removed, at least for the present. The two deer were also brought in, besides a fine one killed by the general, and ducks, geese, and such like were freely added by the other hunters, who had taken a wider circuit. It appears strange that, although I had traveled hundreds of miles in the buffalo country, this one was the first I had ever seen. The conviction weighing upon my mind that it was a huge bear I was approaching had so excited me
If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me, and what a blessing that would be! If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a business man, and that would be okay, too. But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good drunken bum, and Lord, what a shame that would be. And worst of all if he picks up that magazine he's going to be a skirt-chasing womanizer.' The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's footsteps as he entered the house whistling and headed for his room. The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table.. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them. Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked up the silver dollar and dropped into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink, while he admired this month's centerfold. 'Lord have mercy,' the old preacher disgustedly whispered. 'He's gonna run for Congress.' This Really Happened!
A Russian couple was walking down the street in St.
that, although within fair gun shot, I actually could not see his horns. The general and my companions had many a hearty laugh at my expense, he often expressing wonder that my keen eye could not, when close to the animal, perceive the horns, while he could see them plainly near two miles distant.
A severe storm setting in about this time, had it not been for our excellent store of provisions we should most probably have perished of starvation. There was no game to be procured, and our horses were beginning to die for want of nourishment. We remained in this camp until our provisions were all expended, and our only resource was the flesh of the horses which died of starvation and exposure to the storm. It was not such nutritious food as our fat buffalo and venison, but in our present circumstances it relished tolerably well. When the storm was expended we moved up the river, hoping to fall in with game. We, unfortunately, found but little on our course. When we had advanced some twenty miles we halted. Our position looked threatening. It was mid-winter, and every thing around us bore a gloomy aspect. We were without provisions, and we saw no means of obtaining any. At this crisis, six or seven Indians
Petersburg the other night, when the man felt a drop hit his nose. "I think it's raining," he said to his wife. "No, that felt more like snow to me," she replied.
"No, I'm sure it was just rain,” he said. Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument about whether it was raining or snowing. Just then they saw a minor communist party official walking toward them. "Let's not fight about it," the man said, "let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether it's officially raining or snowing." As the official approached, the man said, "Tell us, Comrade Rudolph, is it officially raining or snowing?" "It's raining, of course," he answered and walked on. But the woman insisted: "I know that felt like snow!" To which the man quietly replied: "Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!" Life’s Little Surprises

of the Pawnee Loup band came into our camp. Knowing them to be friendly, we were overjoyed to see them. They informed our interpreter that their village was only four miles distant, which at once accounted for the absence of game. They invited us to their lodges, where they could supply us with every thing that we needed; but on our representing to them our scarcity of horses, and the quantity of peltry we had no means of packing, they immediately started off to their village (our interpreter accompanying them in quest of horses, and speedily returned with a sufficient number. Packing our effects, we accompanied them to their village, Two Axe, of whom I have previously made mention, and a Spaniard named Antoine Behele, chief of the band, forming part of our escort.
Arrived at their village, which we found well provided with every thing we needed, the Indians gave us a hospitable reception, and spread a feast which, as they had promised, "made all our hearts glad." Our horses, too, were well cared for, and soon assumed a more rotund appearance. We purchased for our future use beans, pumpkins, corn, cured

leaving you for good. I've been a good woman to you for seven years and I have nothing to show for it. These last two weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you had quit your job today and that was the last straw. Last week, you came home and didn't notice that I had gotten my hair and nails done, cooked your favorite meal and even wore a brand new negligee. You came home and ate in two minutes, and went straight to sleep after watching the game. You don't tell me you love me anymore, you don't touch me or anything. Either you're cheating or you don't love me anymore, whatever the case is, I'm gone. Have a great life! Your EX-Wife

meat, besides some beaverskins, giving them in exchange a variety of manufactured goods used in the Indian trade, of which we had a great plenty. We replaced our lost horses by purchasing others in their stead; and now, every thing being ready for departure, our general intimated to Two Axe his wish to get on. Two Axe objected. "My men are about to surround the buffalo," he said; "if you go now, you will frighten them. You must stay four days more, then you may go." His word was law, so we staid accordingly.
Within the four days appointed they made "the surround," and killed fourteen hundred buffaloes. The tongues were counted by General Ashley himself, and thus I can guarantee the truth of the assertion.
To the reader unacquainted with the Indian mode of taking these animals, a concise description may not be uninteresting.
There were probably engaged in this hunt from one to two thousand Indians, some mounted and some on foot. They encompass a large space where the buffaloes are contained, and, closing in around them on all points, form a complete circle. Their circle at first inclosed may measure perhaps six miles in diameter, with an irregular circumference determined by the movements of the herd. When "the surround" is formed, the hunters radiate from the main body to the right and left until the ring is entire. The chief then gives the order to charge, which is communicated along the ring with the speed of lightning; every man then rushes to the centre, and the work of destruction is begun. The unhappy victims, finding themselves hemmed in on every side, run this way and that in their mad efforts to escape. Finding all chance of escape impossible, and seeing their slaughtered fellows drop dead at their feet, they bellow with affright, and in the confusion that whelms them, lose all power of resistance. The slaughter generally lasts two or three hours, and seldom many get clear of the weapons of their assailants.
The field over, the "surround" presents the appearance of one vast slaughter-house. He who has been most successful in the work of devastation is celebrated as a hero, and receives the highest honors from the "fair sex," while he who has been so unfortunate as not to kill a buffalo is jeered and ridiculed by the whole band. Flaying, dress-
ing, and preserving the meat next engages their attention, and affords them full employment for several weeks.
The "surround" accomplished, we received permission from Two Axe to take up our line of march. Accordingly, we started along the river, and had only proceeded five miles from the village when we found that the Platte forked. Taking the south fork, we journeyed on some six miles, when we encamped. So we continued every day, making slow progress, some days not advancing more than four or five miles, until we had left the Pawnee villages three hundred miles in our rear. We found plenty of buffalo along our route until we approached the Rocky Mountains, when the buffalo, as well as all other game, became scarce, and we had to resort to the beans and corn supplied us by the Pawnees.
Not finding any game for a number of days, we again felt alarmed for our safety. The snow was deep on the ground, and our poor horses could obtain no food but the boughs and bark of the cotton-wood trees. Still we pushed forward, seeking to advance as far as possible, in order to open a trade with the Indians, and occupy ourselves in trapping during the finish of the season. We were again put upon reduced rations, one pint of beans per day being the allowance to a mess of four men, with other articles in proportion. Here I had a serious difficulty with our general, which arose in the following manner. The general desired me to shoe his horse, which I cheerfully proceeded to do. I had finished setting three shoes, and had yet one nail to drive in the fourth, when, about to drive the last nail, the horse, which had been very restless during the whole time, withdrew his foot from me. My patience becoming exhausted, I applied the hammer several times to his belly, which is the usual punishment inflicted by blacksmiths upon unruly horses. The general, who was standing near, flew into a violent rage, and poured his curses thick and fast upon me. Feeling hurt at such language from the lips of a man whom I had treated like my own brother, I retorted, reminding him of the many obligations he owed me. I told him that his language to me was harsh and unmerited; that I had thus far served him faithfully; that I had done for him what no other man would do, periling my life for him on several occasions; that I had been successful in killing game when his men were in a state of starvation; and, warming at the recapitulation, I added, "There is one more nail to drive, general, to finish shoeing that horse, which you may drive for your-
self, or let go undriven, for I will see you dead before I will lift another finger to serve you." But little more was said on either side at that time.
The next morning the general gave orders to pack up and move on. He showed me a worn-out horse, which he ordered me to pack and drive along. I very well knew that the horse could not travel far, even without a pack.
Still, influenced by the harsh language the general had addressed to me on the previous day, I said, "General, I will pack the horse, but I wish you to understand that, whenever he gives out, there I leave him, horse and pack."
"Obey my orders, and let me have none of your insolence, sir," said the general.
I was satisfied this was imposed upon me for punishment. I, however, packed the horse with two pigs of lead and sundry small articles, and drove him along in the rear, the others having started a considerable time previous. The poor animal struggled on for about a mile, and then fell groaning under his burden. I unpacked him, assisted him to rise, and, repacking him, drove him on again in the trail that the others had left in the snow. Proceeding half a mile farther, he again fell. I went through the same ceremony as before. He advanced a few yards, and fell a third time. Feeling mad at the general for imposing such a task upon me, my hands tingling with cold through handling the snowy pack-ropes, I seized my hammer from the pack, and, striking with all my power, it penetrated the poor animal's skull. "There," said I, "take that! I only wish you were General Ashley." "You do, do you?" said a voice from the bushes on the side of the trail.
I well knew the voice: it was the general himself; and another volley of curses descended uninterruptedly upon my head. I was not the man to flinch. "What I said I meant," I exclaimed, "and it makes no odds whether you heard it or not."
"You are an infernal scoundrel, and I'll shoot you;" and, suiting the action to the word, he cocked his piece and leveled it. I cocked my rifle and presented it also, and then we stood at bay, looking each other direct in the eye. "General," I at length said, "you have addressed language
to me which I allow no man to use, and, unless you retract that last epithet, you or I must surely die."
He finally said, "I will acknowledge that it was language which never should be used to a man, but when I am angry I am apt to speak hastily. But,” he added, "I will make you suffer for this."
"Not in your service, general," I replied. "You can take your horse now, and do what you please with him. I am going to return to St. Louis." The general almost smiled at the idea. “You will play —— going back to St. Louis," he said, "when, in truth, you were afraid of being killed by the Indians, through being left too far behind with that old horse."
I left general, horse, and pack, and started on to overtake the advanced party, in order to get my saddlebags before leaving them. Approaching the party, I advanced to Fitzpatrick (in whose possession they were) and addressed him: "Hold up, Fitzpatrick; give me my saddlebags. I am going to leave you, and return to St. Louis." "What!" exclaimed he, "have you had more words with the general?" "Yes," I replied, "words that will never be forgiven — by me, at least, in this life. I am bound to return."
Well," said he, "wait till we encamp, a few hundred yards ahead. Your things are in the pack; when we stop you can get them." I accompanied them till they encamped; then, taking my goods from the pack, I was getting ready to return, when the general came up.
Seeing me about to carry my threat into execution, he addressed me: "Jim, you have ammunition belonging to me; you can not take that with you."
Luckily, I had plenty of my own, so I delivered up all in my possession belonging to him.
"Sir," I said, "as Fortune has favored me with plenty, I deliver up yours; but, if I had had none of my own, I would have retained a portion of yours, or died in the attempt. And it seems to me that you must have a very small soul to see a man turned adrift without any thing to protect him against hostile savages, or procure him necessary food in traversing this wide wilderness." He then said no more to me, but called Fitzpatrick, and

In a personal letter from former Escondido Chief of Police, Jim Maher, The Paper has learned his long awaited decision concerning his candidacy for the 2014 election. Excerpts from his letter: Lyle,
I have made a decision regarding the Escondido 2014 election.
Since I had promised to share it with you before anyone else, I am sending you this email. Besides my immediate family, and a few close friends who have been sworn to secrecy until it is out to the general public, you are the first! I have decided to not be a candidate for the Mayor seat, or a candidate for a council district position.
There are several reasons why I made this decision, including the benefits of being retired, (Eva and I travel often) opportunities to be involved in other community/charitable events, and, most importantly, the ability to spend more time with my adult children and our grandkids. I also have a great pension. I would not be comfortable accepting another taxpayer paid salary. Nor would I want to be obligated to anyone who donated a large

Having said that, there was another reason which really sealed the decision for me. I have never wanted to be a politician.
My Dad was a councilman in the 60's/70's in upstate New York, where I grew up. He was talked into running for office by community members, beat an incumbent, and then quickly realized he hated politics! I stayed out of politics as a police chief. My decisions were made based on what I believed was best for the department and the community. I was always honest with the city manager, the council, (perhaps if I had been less honest I would still have my job......) the department employees, and the community. I don't believe I would be very successful as an elected official with those principles.
And let me clarify: I don't mean to claim that ALL elected officials are dishonest. I just don't think that many politicians will speak up, when they SHOULD, if they are worried it will possibly hurt their next election. I also believe they won't always tell the 'whole truth' for the same reason. Of course, many just flat out LIE! But I can finish with two additional comments:

Leftists are like that, the only rules that matter to them are those imposed on others.
The letter illustrates well your original point, the state of national division, worst since the civil war. More than half of the country (let's count again AFTER apparatchicks like Learner and Holder are in jail) are screaming for justice, while the smaller half, temporarily in charge (and I say by cheating), pretends to wonder why the bigger half isn't just caving in. If that actually happened, whom would the leftists blame then? Further, this country is a constitutional republic, a system designed specifically to protect rights of individuals, not trample the rights by rule of mob, which is what "democracy" (a 50-50 vote) does. As that published opinion illustrates, the extreme left is still infatuated with the idea that someone can trump the Constitution to serve their agenda and then hide..... presidents Nixon and Clinton were impeached for much lesser crimes, and nobody used the word "race". After 6 consecutive years of obama's failures, we still have two wars, with two more about to erupt, and obama is viewed
as worst since WW2. Laws are being ignored, unemployment (when counted the traditional way) is well above 10%. The leftists are still in denial, but The Paper provided soap box for their alternative view anyway. /s/Thomas Skarvada Encinitas ••••• Dear Mr. Davis:
I write this to congratulate you on publishing the letter "Rebellion?" by James Long in the July 24 issue of The Paper. It must have taken a lot of courage to do so, since it attacked your own position.
In his letter, James Long said a lot that needs to be said concerning the sorry state of our nation at the present time, and the reasons for this situation. I fully agree with his comments, even though you may not. Certainly, his letter would never have seen the light of day if it had been submitted to the UT-Sandiego screed.
I have only one carp with his comment concerning the origins of the Civil War. The key issue was not slavery but its extension into the Western Territories, which led to the secession of South Carolina

The Importance of Oral Histories
ny component in school curriculum. Experiential learning, and hearing an oral history, helps students feel as though they are experiencing the world events they are studying. My bill passed unanimously in the Senate and is now in the Assembly committee process.
Simply reading about genocide in a textbook or history book does not always depict the scope of the events or always serve to grab students’ attention. Oral histories that living individuals tell about their past, or about the past of other people, can change this.
Oral histories can help students better relate to the curriculum through firsthand accounts by people who have experienced some of the most tragic events in international history.
Unfortunately oral histories are not required curriculum in California schools.
That’s why I authored Senate Bill 1380, which encourages an oral testimo-
It is important California’s academic standards in social science and history reflect all levels of conflicts so students fully comprehend world history. SB 1380 would greatly assist students’ understanding of world history through personal accounts of important historical events.

Important Work Continued During the Summer Break
The Legislature adjourned for its summer recess July 3rd and reconvenes August 4th. While the recess was a time to recharge batteries and reconnect with family and friends, it was also a time to hear from constituents. During the recess, I held a series of advisories with local business leaders about a wide variety of economic issues facing our state and region.
Since agriculture is such a vital part of our economy, I held meetings with wine growers in Temecula and farmers in Fallbrook to discuss issues impacting local agriculture. Both discussions centered on the need for sustainable and affordable sources of water and for increased storage capacity. Concerns over new ground water regulations were aired and the need for local control was stressed. I also met with members of

the California Bankers Association to discuss their concerns about legislation, the state of the economy and new regulations that are having a significant impact on independent banks. Additional advisories included the California Apartment Association, the California Optometric Association, the California Chiropractic Association, the California Pharmacists Association and the California New Car Dealers Association. Throughout these meetings, my intent was to meet with representatives of diverse industries to hear their concerns and to learn how state policies are impacting our economy. I appreciate the time so many people took to meet with me to discuss these important issues. Now that the break is over, I am returning to Sacramento refreshed and, as a result of the advisories, better informed.

Happy Hour Politics Meeting to Feature D.A. Bonnie Dumanis – At their meeting on Thursday, August 21st, Happy Hour Politics (HHP) will host District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis to speak on Human Trafficking as a major and growing crime in San Diego. According to the DA’s office, the number of human trafficking cases convicted and prosecuted in San Diego County has more than tripled over the past four years. During 2013, 46 human trafficking cases were submitted to the District Attorney’s Office and 43 defendants were charged. Fifty victims of human trafficking were identified, including nine minors. These statistics are frightening, and as Ms. Dumanis states, “….. the human trafficking trend is disturbing and must be stopped.” One of the biggest issues in human trafficking today is the increasing involvement of street gangs in the activity. “Gangs are engaging in human trafficking as a money-making operation that in some cases is replacing drug dealing.” The HHP meetings are held from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at The Crossings, 5800 The Crossings Dr, Carlsbad. There is a $15 cash cover charge (includes appetizers). Drinks are available for purchase. For more information, contact Coordinator Melanie Burkholder at 307.690.7814 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Check Happy Hour Politics on Facebook, or on Twitter @hhpcbad. RSVP by August 14th.

There is probably no better example of the flawed thinking that has driven the “land planning by ballot box” crowd than the vituperative back-andforth now playing out over the controversially named “Open Space” initiative in Escondido. This ballot measure is being floated by the would-be developer of the former Escondido Country Club site stuck in a quagmire of lawsuits and conflicting stories of outrage and deceit. Emotion has displaced logic and invective takes the place of reasoned debate. Lies and half truths enough to sink a battleship litter the conversation, and the voters of Escondido are being asked to navigate the shoals.

try to drown out your constant nagging. Too bad that doesn't work. I did notice when you cut off all of your hair last week, the first thing that came to mind was 'You look just like a man!' My mother raised me to not say anything if you can't say anything nice. When you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY BROTHER, because I stopped eating pork seven years ago. I went to sleep on you when you had on that new negligee because the price tag was still on it. I prayed that it was a coincidence that my brother had just borrowed fifty dollars from me that morning and your negligee was $49.99. After all of this, I still loved you and felt that we could work it out. So when I discovered that I had hit the lotto for ten million dollars, I quit my job and bought us two tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said with your letter that you wrote, you won't get a dime from me. So take care. Signed Rich As Hell and Free!

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
I have been monitoring social media discussions on the proposed Specific Plan, and am astounded at the blatant disregard for factual representation of it. The most vehement opponents trot out red herrings at an alarming rate, either through ignorance or in an attempt to obfuscate and thus confuse those less fully engaged.
The developer is not blameless in all of this. Stuck in the Rough, the developer, has helped to create the emotional climate that now pervades the issue through a pattern of illadvised counter measures in the wake of neighborhood opposition. And supporters of the proposed development have sometimes been a bit fast and loose with the facts. That said, they have put on paper the plans and methodology for the project and they are technically sound. That the project could be better is the sad result of the city council’s decisions that essentially took

Robert Oppenheimer: The Father ofThe Atomic Age
The current TV miniseries, “Manhattan,” (Sundays on WGN America) has resurrected curiosity about the project that produced the first atomic bombs, which ultimately ended World War II. Heading up the Manhattan Project was the brilliant, albeit, controversial theoretical physicist Julius Robert “Oppie” Oppenheimer. Born to a wealthy New York City family in 1904, he was a professor of physics at the UC Berkeley when tapped to head the project.

In fact, before hostilities began, Lincoln was willing to guarantee the preservation of slavery in states where it existed, and had called for barring slavery only in the territories. Other than this detail, it was an excellent letter. Cheers, /s/Sorab K. Ghandhi Escondido CA 92029

There were four bombs developed at the remote, desolate and hastily-built community of Las Alamos. Located on the high desert of northern New Mexico, it was the most secret government facility ever built. Oppenheimer chose the location for its remoteness.
The first bomb, called “Trinity Gadget,” was a test near Alamogordo, N.M. The second, known as “Little Boy,” a uranium bomb, was dropped Aug. 6, 1945, on Hiroshima, Japan; the third, “Fat Man,” a plutonium bomb, was dropped Aug. 9, 1945, on Nagasaki, Japan. The fourth was never used, however, reports indicated there was no more fuel for additional weapons. On October 9, 1941, shortly before the United States entered World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt approved a crash program to develop an atomic bomb.
In June 1942, Brig. Gen. Leslie Groves was appointed director of what became known as the Manhattan Project. Groves selected Oppenheimer to head the project's secret weapons laboratory, a choice which surprised many, as Oppenheimer was not known to be politically

requested him to dissuade me from leaving. Fitzpatrick came, and exerted all his eloquence to deter me from going, telling me of the great distance before me, the danger I ran, when alone, of being killed by Indians — representing the almost certain fact that I must perish from starvation. He reminded me that it was now March, and the snows were already melting; that Spring, with all its beauties, would soon be ushered in, and I should lose the sublime scenery of the Rocky Mountains. But my mind was bent upon going; all my former love for the man was forfeited, and I felt I could never endure his presence again.
Fitzpatrick's mission having failed, the general sent a French boy to intercede, toward whom I felt great attachment. He was named Baptiste La Jeunesse, and was about seventeen years of age. I had many times protected this lad from the abuse of his countrymen, and had fought several battles on his account, for which reason he naturally fled to me for protection, and had grown to regard me in the light of a father.
A look at the Major Scenarios on the Escondido Country Club/Golf Course Land
I have considered all the possible outcomes for the former Escondido Country Club/Golf Course. Here’s the possibilities I came up with. #1 The Lakes Initiative is approved by the voters on November 4. It allows for the building of up to 430 homes, along with the requirement to build a Community Center, Olympic-size pool and tennis courts and donate $1 million to an Open Space Preservation fund. The Open Space ordinance is gone and the development moves ahead. Major issue still to be resolved is the lawsuit against the City. I assume that would be dropped though legal fees would still be an issue. #2 a The Lakes Initiative fails but Mr. Schlesinger
When this boy saw that I was in earnest about leaving, fearing that all attempts at persuasion would be useless, he hung his nether lip, and appeared perfectly disconsolate. The general, calling this lad to him, desired him to come to me and persuade me from the notion of leaving. He pledged his word to Baptiste that he would say no more to displease me; that he would spare no efforts to accommodate me, and offered me free use of his horses, assigning as a reason for this concession that he was unwilling for word to reach the States that he had suffered a man to perish in the wilderness through a little private difficulty in the camp. At this moment Le Pointe presented himself, manifesting by his appearance that he had something of importance to communicate.
"General," said he, "more than half the men are determined to leave with Beckwourth; they are now taking ammunition from the sacks and hiding it about. What is to be done?" "I will do the best I can." Then turning to the lad, he said, "I took Jim's ammunition, thinking to deter him from going; had he insisted upon going, I should have furnished him
wins the lawsuit against the City with the judge deciding it was a “taking.” That means the City will be required to pay Mr. Schlesinger for his land since the Fifth Amendment provides that private property shall not be taken without just compensation. In this scenario, I assume Mr. Schlesinger would also be awarded legal fees. Cost to the City would be $5 million to $50 million — depends upon the judge. City could also appeal the decision.
#2 b The Lakes Initiative fails but Mr. Schlesinger wins the lawsuit against the City with the judge deciding it was a “taking.” The City cannot afford to pay the judgement and enters into negotiations with Mr. Schlesinger. In 2016, a new Initiative — backed by the City Council — goes on the ballot and passes. The property is developed. #3 The Lakes initiative fails and Mr. Schlesinger loses the lawsuit against the City. Mr. Schlesinger appeals the case which ties up the property for years. In the meantime, the property is main-

with plenty. Go now," he added, "and tell him I want him to stay, but if he insists upon going, to take whatever he wants."
Baptiste left the group which surrounded the general, and made his way to me, with his head inclined. "Mon frère," said the lad, addressing me as I sat, "the général talk much good. He vant you stay. I tell him you no stay; dat you en colère. I tell him if mon frère go, by gar, I go too. He say, you go talk to Jim, and get him stay. I tell you vat I tink. You stay leetle longer, and if de général talk you bad one time more, den ve go, by gar. You take von good horse, me take von good horse too; ve carry our planket, ve take some viande, and some poudre — den ve live. Ve go now — ve take noting — den ve die."
I knew that the boy gave good advice, and, foregoing my former resolve, I concluded to remain. My decision was quickly communicated to the whole camp, and the hidden parcels of ammunition were restored to their proper places. The storm in the camp ceased, and all were ready to proceed.
[Of course, today’ the forts that now afford protection to the traveler were built by ourselves at the constant peril of our lives, amid Indian tribes nearly double their present numbers. Without wives and children to comfort us on our lonely way; without well-furnished wagons to resort to when hungry; no roads before us but trails temporarily made; our clothing consisting of the skins of the animals that had fallen before our unerring rifles, and often whole days on insufficient rations, or entirely without food; occasionally our whole party on guard the entire night, and our strength deserting us through unceasing watching and fatigue; these are sufferings that made theirs appear trivial, and ours surpass in magnitude my power of relation.
Without doubt, many emigrants were subjected to considerable hardship, during the early part of the emigration, by the loss of cattle, and the Indians came in for their full share of blame. But it was through extreme carelessness that so many were lost; and those who have charged their losses upon the Indians have frequently found their stock, or a portion of it, harnessed to wagons either far in advance of them, or lagging carelessly in their rear. The morality of the whites I have not found to exceed very much that of the red man; for there are plenty of the former, belonging to trains on the routes, who would not hesitate to take an ox or two, if any chance offered for getting hold of them. But to return. At the time when I had concluded to proceed with the party, we were encamped in the prairie, away from any stream (having passed the fork of the Platte), and were again in a starving condition. Except an occasional hare or rabbit, there was no sign of supplying ourselves with any kind of game.
We traveled on till we arrived at Pilot Butte, where two misfortunes befell us. A great portion of our horses were stolen by the Crow Indians, and General Ashley was taken sick, caused, beyond doubt, by exposure and insufficient fare. Our condition was growing worse and worse; and, as a measure best calculated to procure relief, we all resolved to go on a general hunt, and bring home something to supply our pressing necessities. All who were able, therefore, started in different directions, our customary mode of hunting. I traveled, as near as I could judge, about ten miles from the camp, and saw no signs of game. I reached a high point of land, and, on taking a general survey, I discovered a river which I had never seen in this region before. It was of considerable

the drafting of the plans away from themselves and their planning professionals.
While this measure is not being driven by the requirements of Escondido’s infamous Proposition S, the philosophy behind the move is essentially the same: people who are not familiar with the intricacies of government and land planning will be asked to decide what is best for the community rather than trusting the judgment of those they elected and the professional staff they employ.
The underlying premise is that the people we elect cannot be trusted to make the right decisions on our behalf, so therefore we need to do it. Huh? If the electorate is too ignorant or disengaged in the process to elect the right people to represent their wishes, how can they be expected to make the right ones on such complex issues as
The great fear on the part of homeowners in the Country Club area is that voters will not be sympathetic to their plight or not be interested enough in the whole thing, succumbing to the campaign efforts of the developer. This issue should never have been put in the hands of voters, regardless of the outcome. That’s called kicking the can down the road. A process bringing all the stakeholders to the table to do what is best for all parties? That’s called leadership.

size, flowing four or five miles distant, and on its banks I observed acres of land covered with moving masses of buffalo. I hailed this as a perfect Godsend, and was overjoyed with the feeling of security infused by my opportune discovery. However, fatigued and weak; I accelerated my return to the camp, and communicated my success to my companions. Their faces brightened up at the intelligence, and all were impatient to be at them.
The general, on learning my intelligence, desired us to move forward to the river with what horses we had left, and each man to carry a pack on his back of the goods that remained after loading the cattle. He farther desired us to roll up snow to provide him with a shelter, and to return the next day to see if he survived. The men, in their eagerness to get to the river (which is now called Green River), loaded themselves so heavily that three or four were left with nothing but their rifles to carry.
The anxiety of the general to remain with us prevented his giving utterance to the least complaint, and we all arrived in good season on the banks of Green River. We were rejoiced to find that our companions who preceded us had killed a fine buffalo, and we abandoned ourselves that evening to a general spirit of rejoicing. Our leader, in a few days, entirely recovered, and we were thus, by my forethought in bringing him with us, spared the labor of a return journey. We all feasted ourselves to our hearts' content upon the delicious, coarse-grained flesh of the buffalo, of which there was an unlimited supply. There were, besides, plenty of wild geese and teal ducks on the river — the latter, however, I very seldom ventured to kill.
One day several of us were out hunting buffalo, the general, who, by the way, was a very good shot, being among the number. The snow had blown from the level prairie, and the wind had drifted it in deep masses over the margins of the small hills, through which the buffalo had made trails just wide enough to admit one at a time. These snow-trails had become quite deep — like all snow-trails in the spring of the year — thus affording us a fine opportunity for lurking in one trail, and shooting a buffalo in another. The general had wounded a bull, which, smarting with pain, made a furious plunge at his assailant, burying him in the snow with a thrust from his savage-looking head and horns. I, seeing the danger in which he was placed, sent a ball into the beast just behind the shoulder, instantly dropping him dead. The general was rescued from almost certain death, having received only a few scratches in the adventure. After remaining in camp four or five days, the general resolved upon dividing our party into detachments of four or five men each, and sending them upon different routes, in order the better to accomplish the object of our perilous journey, which was the collecting all the beaver-skins possible while the fur was yet valuable. Accordingly, we constructed several boats of buffalo hides for the purpose of descending the river and proceeding along any of its tributaries that might lie in our way.
One of our boats being finished and launched, the general sprang into it to test its capacity. The boat was made fast by a slender string, which snapping with the sudden jerk, the boat was drawn into the current and drifted away, general and all, in the direction of the opposite shore. It will be necessary, before I

aligned with the conservative military, nor to be an efficient leader of large projects. Despite Oppenheimer being a suspected communist, Groves said the scientist was too important to be ousted over “suspicious behavior.”
Groves was impressed by Oppenheimer's singular grasp of designing and constructing the bomb. As a military engineer, Groves knew the project would involve physics, chemistry, metallurgy, ordnance and engineering. Groves reckoned Oppenheimer would supply the drive necessary to push the project to a successful conclusion. Los Alamos was built on the site of an old school north of Santa Fe, N.M. Oppenheimer then assembled a group of the top physicists.
The project was operated by the University of California under contract to the War Department. Los Alamos grew from a few hundred people in 1943 to more than 6,000 in 1945. In August 1943, Oppenheimer told security agents an unknown person had solicited three scientists at Los Alamos for nuclear secrets on behalf of the Soviet Union. Later pressed on the issue, he admitted the only person who had approached him, personally, was a former fellow Berkeley professor.
After a number of failed attempts, Oppenheimer completely reorganized the scientists, focusing on an implosion trigger to work with uranium235. The result became known as Little Boy, the 9,700-pound bomb dropped by a B-29 (Enola Gay) on Hiroshima. Research on as second, more complex, device resulted in what became known as “Fat Man,” the 10,300-pound bomb dropped by a B-29 (Bocks Car) on Nagasaki. There was speculation the two bombs were named after Groves, who was rather rotund, and Oppenheimer, who was extremely slender.
After the bombs leveled the two Japanese cities, Oppenheimer was heard to utter a quote from the Hindu Bhagavad Gita: "Now I have become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
After two years of unsuccessful treatment of throat cancer, Oppenheimer fell into a coma on Feb. 18, 1967, and died at his home in Princeton, N.J., at age 62.

proceed farther, to give the reader a description, in as concise a manner as possible, of this "Green River Suck."
We were encamped, as we had discovered during our frequent excursions, at the head of a great fall of the Green River, where it passes through the Utah Mountains. The current, at a small distance from our camp, became exceedingly rapid, and drew toward the centre from each shore. This place we named the Suck. This fall continued for six or eight miles, making a sheer descent, in the entire distance, of upward of two hundred and fifty feet. The river was filled with rocks and ledges, and frequent sharp curves, having high mountains and perpendicular cliffs on either side. Below our camp, the river passed through a canyon, or cañon, as it is usually written, a deep river-pass through a bluff or mountain, which continued below the fall to a distance of twenty-five or thirty miles. Wherever there was an eddy or a growth of willows, there was sure to be found a beaver lodge; the cunning creatures having selected that secluded, and, as they doubtless considered, inaccessible spot, to conceal themselves from the watchful eye of the trapper.
To return to the general. His frail bark, having reached the opposite shore, encountered a ledge of rocks, and had hardly touched, when, by the action of the rolling current, it was capsized, and he thrown struggling into the water. As Providence would have it, he reached the bluff on the opposite, side, and, holding on to the crevices in the high and perpendicular cliff, sung out lustily for assistance. Not a moment was to be lost. Some one must attempt to save him, for he could not hold his present position, in such cold water, long. I saw that no one cared to risk his life amid such imminent peril, so, calling to a Frenchman of the name of Dorway, whom I knew to be one of the best swimmers, to come to the rescue, I threw off my leggins and plunged in, supposing he would follow. I swam under water as far as I could, to avail myself of the under current (this mode is always practiced by the Indians in crossing a rapid stream). I struck the bluff a few feet above the general. After taking breath for a moment or two, I said to him (by the way, he was no swimmer), "There is only one way I can possibly save you, and I may fail in that; but you must

Cami is a 5-year-old spayed female Boxer mix available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society, Escondido Campus. Cami isn't a purebred Boxer, but she has plenty of Boxer characteristics: her head and her expression, her happy personality and, most of all, her little stumpy tail that never stops wagging. Sometimes she wags so much her whole body wiggles! She loves to play fetch and is rarely seen without a tennis ball in her mouth. She’s not much of a barker, and at 55 pounds is a nice medium size. Cami has shown signs of having a high prey drive, so she probably would be best as the only pet in the home. Sometimes she forgets how strong and energetic she is, so sturdy children might be best.

What’s up With SSDs?
The problem with SSDs has been that they are far more expensive than HDDs. Storage cost on an HDD is around ten cents per GB (gigabyte). On an SSD it’s around sixty cents per GB. The cost of SSDs is dropping and they will eventually make HDDs as obsolete as floppies. HDDs will become obsolete in portable PCs sooner because of their durability. Within five years all notebook PCs will drives.
SSDs (solid state drives) have been around for years but only recently have they become somewhat affordable for the average home and small business user. The standard HDD stores data on a spinning disk. The read/write head stores and retrieves information by traversing back and forth across the spinning disk. The solidstate drive has no moving parts. Like a memory stick or flash drive, it reads and writes electronically. That enables
This practice is common on new high-end desktop PCs.

"Any thing you say, James, I will follow," said he. "Then," I continued, "when I float down to you, place your hands on my shoulder, and do not take hold of my neck. Then, when I give you the word, kick out with all your might, and we may possibly get across."

The SSD (usually 250 to 500 GB) is “mastered” to a one or two Terabyte “slaved” HDD. The SSD is used when the computer boots up and runs programs. The HDD is used to store the files.
An upgrade to an SSD is the single most effective way to increase you computer’s speed. Watching your PC boot up in ten seconds instead of a minute is impressive. Many users get by without a “slaved” HDD. A 250 or 500GB SSD is big enough for many users without the need for a HDD storage drive and there are always external or cloud storage options available.

We swam to within a few yards of the opposite shore, where the main suck caught us, and, my strength becoming exhausted, we began slowly to recede from the shore toward inevitable death. At this moment Fitzpatrick thrust a long pole toward us, to the end of which he attached a rope which the party on shore retained possession of. I seized the pole with a death-grip, and we were hauled out of our perilous situation; a few moment's delay, and the world had seen the last of us. After this rescue, the general remarked to Fitzpatrick, "That Beckwourth is surely one of the most singular men I ever met. I do not know what to think of him; he never speaks to me except when absolutely unavoidable; still, he is the first and only man to encounter peril on my behalf. Three times he has now saved my life when not another man attempted to succor me. He is a problem I can not possibly solve."

The most cost effective way to get the benefit of SSD technology is to order it with your new desktop or notebook PC. The best way to upgrade an existing PC is to install the SSD with a clean OS, then install your applications and copy your files to the new SSD.

"He is a singular being," he exclaimed; "be knows we are about to separate, yet he does not trouble himself to come and bid me good-by. I must go to him."
Approaching me, he said, "James, we are now about to part; these toilsome enterprises in the mountains are extremely hazardous; although I hope to see you again, perhaps we may never meet more. I am under great obligations to you. You have several times rescued me from certain death, and, by your skill in hunting, you have done great service to my camp. When my mind was irritated and harassed, I was betrayed into the use of language toward you which I regretted immediately after, and still regret. I wish you to forgive me, and desire to part in friendship. So long as you continue to use the same precaution you have hitherto used, I can securely hope you will escape all accident, and look forward to meeting you again under more auspicious circumstances;" and he concluded by bidding me goodby.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed STAGE 2 DROUGHT ALERT
As California continues to face a drought, every drop of water saved helps extend our reserves. The San Diego County Water Authority’s Board of Directors have declared a Stage 2 Drought Alert condition calling for mandatory water conservation measures to prevent water waste. Mandatory conservation measures for Stage 2 include: • Limiting outdoor watering to no more than 3 days per week. • Watering only during the late evening or early morning hours • Eliminating runoff from irrigation systems • Repairing all leaks promptly
• Turning off water fountains and other water features unless they use recycled water • Using hoses with shut-off valves for washing cars (or patronizing commercial car washes that re-circulate water) • Serving water to restaurant patrons only on request • Offering hotel guests the option of not laundering towels and linens daily • Using water (unnecessarily) for construction operations that receive water from a construction meter or water truck for any purpose other than those required by regulatory agencies is prohibited. On August 13, 2014 the City Council will consider modifying the municipal code to bring Escondido to Stage 2 also. If you have any questions on the water restrictions, please call the City Utilities Division at 760-839-4075.

Previous to this, and after his rescue from the "Suck," he mentioned to Fitzpatrick that I ought to have the lead of a party, and that he believed I was as capable as any one in the company for it. Fitzpatrick told him he did not believe I would accept the responsibility. The general bade him ask me.

mountains, and I had but little experience in trapping, and that there were older men better qualified for the duty. The leadership of a party of a fur company is a very responsible post. Placed similarly to a captain of a whaling vessel, where all depends upon his success, if a captain is fortunate, and returns from a profitable voyage, of course, in the eyes of the owners, he is a firstrate officer, and stands well for the future. But if he has experienced unusual hardships, and returns more or less unsuccessful, he is disgraced in his command, and is thrust aside for a more fortunate man. It is just similar with trappers in the mountains; whatever is their fortune, good or bad, the leader is the person on whom the praise or blame falls. After "caching" our peltry and

Sixty skins, when dried, formed a pack of one hundred pounds.

It should be pretty clear by now that the underlying reason for the 2008 financial panic was the 1999 repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act led by President Clinton and Republicans led by Sen. Phil Gramm who had joined forces at the behest of our largest banks. Glass-Steagall was 1933 depression, legislation that permanently separated commercial depositories from investment banks. The folly of that repeal is only now becoming understood and efforts have already commenced to rescind it.

My Two Cents Worth
The commentaries of R. H. O’Malley and Kent Ballard prompt me to say that having personally become disenchanted with the narrow-minded ideology of both the Democratic and Republican Parties and subsequently registering as “No Party affiliation” I feel qualified to opine that there’s more than enough blame to go around for our country’s disappointing state of affairs.
As Mr. O’Malley stated we must also lay considerable blame upon the Democratic sponsored nonsense that the American Dream would only be fulfilled if every living soul owned their own home with virtual disregard for their ability, stability or willingness to pay for it. But, it was pure idiocy for FHA to guaranty substandard loans and more so for government backed secondary markets (FNMA & FrediMac) to become the end investors of worthless mortgages. All that said, it was the misguided Republican Bush administration that ruined a balanced budget squandering trillions along with thousands of human lives while upsetting the delicate political balance of the Arab world and creating the international nightmare we face today. Add to this a cheap money policy primarily purposed in Obama’s administration to bolster the financial markets while cheapening the dollar. Combined results of these several travesties bear blame for our nations’ current economic dilemma. But, watch as our two esteemed major political parties finger point and connive to
place the entire blame upon each other. It’s almost beyond hope of our citizens to expect duly elected representatives to do anything constructive and in cooperation with one another and long since time for placing blame. When will the time arrive that Congress will actually do something sensible? Maybe it’s time for Kent Ballard to divide his woods into time-shares so we can all take turns hiding in the woods. /s/ Sid Colquitt Escondido, CA.
Rebuttal to Kent Ballard
It concerns me deeply that ignorant people like Kent Ballard vote. It isn't liberals, democrats, conservatives, republicans, libertarians, minorities, nor billionaires that are ruining this country: it is low-information voters like Mr. Ballard that are. When gullible and easily brainwashed people such as Mr. Ballard vote based on personal bias rather than facts, they undermine the democratic process.
First off, I believe there are many legitimate concerns and complains to be leveled at President Obama. This is true of every President in U.S. history, and surely all future Presidents as well. We should always be allowed to voice our complaints about those in public office, and no President will ever be perfect. I would just like the brainwashed mainstream media lemmings like Kent Ballard to complain about things that aren't fantastical and bigoted in origin. Kent, if you want to live under the U.S. Constitution, I suggest you read it first. Obama has actually used far fewer executive orders per day in office than any modern President. Funny how you didn't suggest that Reagan was acting unconstitutionally when he was far out-pacing Obama in executive orders. Reagan, both Bushes, Nixon, Ford, Clinton, Carter... they all used more executive orders per day in office than Obama. Your bias and ignorance are both showing. Then you attack Obama's intelligence because he uses speech-writers and teleprompters. Every modern President uses speech-writers and teleprompters! Again, it is funny how this has never been an issue to you before Obama. Obama has a Harvard Law degree. Regardless of what other issues you have with him, trying to insult his intellect seems very silly, especially in a letter in which your per-

Anabaptists, and anyone else who believed and worshipped differently. There was even persecution against those who didn’t believe in organized religion. What is the reason for all these persecutions?
Pastor Richard Huls, Retired
What’s Wrong With my Belief?
In a recent issue of the UT (July 23, 2014) there is an article about the persecution of Christians in Iraq by a radical militant Muslim group. These persecutions are not limited to Iraq. The world is seeing more and more of such actions against Christians in India, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and other Muslim dominated countries. While these persecutions are against Christians, the Muslims don’t have a monopoly in such behavior. Persecutions have been going on for centuries. While this country was founded on religious freedom, it took a long time for it to take effect. Early America was famous for persecuting Roman Catholics, the Amish, Mormons,

been caused by rubber bands having been wrapped tightly around it. Fearful and in pain, with bone exposed, his injuries were grave and required immediate medical attention, including reconstructive surgery. After treating and stitching his wounds and getting Flynn into stable condition, questions were asked. Who would do this to a two-month-old puppy? Why would they? How could they? And how could we find these people and get justice for Flynn? Unfortunately, the people who brought Flynn to us in the first place left us with inaccurate contact information,
Is it wrong for people to believe differently than we do? What makes people think they are right and the others are wrong? If the one under persecution did terrible things, broke a basic universal law, was offensive, took advantage of a political and/or economic system, destroyed property and life, we could understand the reaction and perhaps even persecutions.
If we look at the perpetrators of the persecuted, such as in Iraq, the actions are more in line with brutality, thievery, power over others with the use of force, and a need to control. Every persecution in history has these earmarks, suggesting that there is little, if any, righteousness in the cause. While some claim to be divinely motivated,it is preposterous to force people to believe under the threat of death, exile, or hell. It seems to me that, if one has a concern to have others believe as one should or could, love would be more persuasive and lasting. I want my belief left alone, unless I seek your input – and, if you really love me, you will take time to share, not force, your belief with me. I would do the same for you.
making it impossible for us to reconnect with them.
Nearly two months after he was brought to us, Flynn’s wounds are virtually healed and he has developed into a happy, loving puppy despite the abuse he endured. This lucky pup has even found his forever home! His foster mom, Katherine, fell in love with him and decided to adopt him permanently. Flynn, now named Wiley, has two dog siblings, a loving family that dotes on him, His future couldn’t be brighter. Just one more reson to support the Humane Society and other Rescue Organization. Consider donating some cash today to help other dogs who are also in desperate need of help.

sonal ignorance of constitutional law is on full display.
If you want to complain about a lawless President, you should have paid more attention during Iran-Contra. You want Obama to be lawless so your hatred can appear less moronic, but the facts don't support your case.
For the record, I am not a liberal, nor am I a conservative. I am an American, just like President Obama, and just like Kent Ballard. I am registered as a Republican, but that doesn't mean I have to fall for the GOP lie machine like poor Kent has. The difference is that some of us prefer to get the facts before we jump to a conclusion (or are convinced of one by dishonest mainstream media outlets such as Fox News). Research before you speak, Kent, and please, at least research before you vote. You've been brainwashed, and I know that comfortable lies feel good (like the lie that there was a cover-up of Benghazi), but if doesn't make you look very good to parrot propaganda, and it sure doesn't do the country any good. /s/Bunny Meyers Vista, CA

‘James Beckwourth-II’ Cont. from Page 13
another branch, which we subsequently named Le Brache Creek, from our comrade who was murdered by the Indians. Our success was much greater here than at any point since leaving the Suck, and we followed it up until we came to a deep cañon, in which we encamped. The next day, while the men were variously engaged about the camp, happening to be in a more elevated position than the others, I saw a party of Indians approaching within a few yards, evidently unaware of our being in their neighborhood. I immediately shouted, "Indians! Indians! to your guns, men!" and leveled my rifle at the foremost of them. They held up their hands, saying, "Bueno ! bueno !" meaning that they were good or friendly; at which my companions cried out to me, "Don't fire! don't fire! they are friendly — they speak Spanish." But we were sorry afterward we did not all shoot. Our horses had taken fright at the confusion and ran up the cañon. Baptiste and myself went in pursuit of them. When we came back with them we found sixteen Indians sitting around our camp smoking, and jabbering their own tongue, which none of us understood. They passed the night and next day with us in apparent friendship. Thinking this conduct assumed, from the fact that they rather "overdid the thing," we deemed it prudent to retrace our steps to the open prairie, where, if they did intend to commence an attack upon us, we should have a fairer chance of defending ourselves. Accordingly, we packed up and left, all the Indians following us.
The next day they continued to linger about the camp. We had but slight suspicion of their motives, although, for security, we kept constant guard upon them. From this they proceeded to certain liberties (which I here strictly caution all emigrants and mountaineers against ever permitting), such as handling our guns, except the arms of the guard, piling them, and then carrying them together. At length one of the Indians shouldered all the guns, and, starting off with them, ran fifty yards from camp. Mentioning to my mates I did not like the manœuvres of these fellows, I started after the Indian and took my gun from him, Baptiste doing the same, and we brought them back to camp. Our companions chided us for doing so, saying we should anger the Indians by doubting their friendship. I said I considered my gun as safe in my own hands as in the hands of a strange savage; if they chose to give up theirs, they were at liberty to do so.
When night came on, we all lay down except poor Le Brache, who kept guard, having an Indian with him to replenish the fire. Some of the men had fallen asleep, lying near by, when we were all suddenly startled by a loud cry from Le Brache and the instant report of a gun, the contents of which passed between Baptiste and myself, who both occupied one bed, the powder burning a hole in our upper blankets. We were all up in an instant. An Indian had seized my rifle, but I instantly wrenched it from him, though, I acknowledge, I was too terrified to shoot. When we had in some measure recovered from our sudden fright, I hastened to Le Brache, and discovered that a tomahawk had been sunk in his head, and there remained. I pulled it out, and in examining the ghastly wound, buried all four fingers of my right hand in his brain. We bound up his head, but he was a corpse in a few moments. Not an Indian was then to be seen, but we well knew they were in the bushes close by, and that, in all probability, we should every one share the fate of our murdered comrade. What to do now was the universal inquiry. With the butt of my rifle I scattered the fire, to prevent the Indians making a sure mark of us. We then proceeded to pack up with the utmost dispatch, intending to move into the open prairie, where, if they attacked us again, we could at least defend ourselves, notwithstanding our disparity of numbers, we being but five to sixteen.
On searching for Le Brache's gun, it was nowhere to be found, the Indian who had killed him having doubtless carried it off. While hastily packing our articles, I very luckily found five quivers well stocked with arrows, the bows attached, together with two Indian guns. These well supplied our missing rifle, for I had practiced so much with bow and arrow that I was considered a good shot. When in readiness to leave, our leader inquired in which direction the river lay; his agitation had been so great that his memory had failed him. I directed the way, and desired every man to put the animals upon their utmost speed until we were safely out of the willows, which order was complied with. While thus running the gauntlet, the balls and arrows whizzed around us as fast as our hidden enemies could send them. Not a man was scratched, however, though two of our horses were wounded, my horse having received an arrow in the neck, and another being wounded near the hip, both slightly. Pursuing our course, we arrived soon in the open ground, where we considered
ourselves comparatively safe.
Arriving at a small rise in the prairie, I suggested to our leader that this would be a good place to make a stand, for if the Indians followed us we had the advantage in position.
"No," said he, "we will proceed on to New Mexico."
I was astonished at his answer, well knowing — though but slightly skilled in geography — that New Mexico must be many hundred miles farther south. However, I was not captain, and we proceeded. Keeping the return track, we found ourselves, in the afternoon of the following day, about sixty miles from the scene of murder.
Editor’s Note: And thus we leave Mr. Beckwourth and his hearty band of travelers. We’ll return in a month or so with another episode. Much more excitement to come in future editions. Mighty battles with a series of Indian tribes, including a major battle with the Black Feet, three years living with the Indians . . . many, many adventures. It’s an interesting look into our past . . . but it’s time to move back into present day life - for there are many other tales to tell .. . more contemorary in nature.
